MR. CHARLES BONNET, of Geneva, from whose works I have selected and translated this volume, is not of the Clerical profession, but is a gentleman of independent fortune. He is held in the highest esteem in the literary world, as a metaphysician, philosopher, and explorer of nature. His deep views, and the light he has thrown on various subjects, give him an undoubted claim to the reputation he enjoys. *
* A complete and new edition of Mr. Bonnet's works was published in 1779, at Neufchatel, in 10 vols. 4to. and 18 vols. 8vo.—The contents of the 8vo. edition are as follows:
Treatise of Insectology - - - 1 vol.
